Pumba's Story...
"It's sleep time. I get a real workout playing with all the other babies in my foster home. We have so much fun. We play wrestling games and chase play toys. We always seem to be worn out by the time we're finished. That's why they call it 'cat naps' cause that's what we do a lot of. I was a stray and being outside is always scary. But now that I'm in a foster home I don't have a care in the world. And I hope to keep it that way and find a forever home preferably with other kitties so I can teach them my games. So come meet me and I'll be forever grateful."

Pumba has turned out to be a sweet boy. And his meow sometimes sounds more like a frog than a cat.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pumba, a Grayslake Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Grayslake, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Grayslake.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Grayslake already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Grayslake breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Grayslake paves the way for another one to be saved.
